ISP Redten Suspends "Free PC" Package

Posted: 10th Feb, 2007 By: MarkJ
Redten Internet has posted a curious update on their website regarding its "Free PC" with broadband promotion (package details). Claiming to have run out of free PC's, Redten duly suspended new signups, but this may only be half the story:

Unfortunately, Redten Internet has run out of free PCs. In the interests of our customers, and to limit waiting times, the broadband with free PC offer has therefore been temporarily suspended.

We are currently working hard to fulfil all existing orders and hope to be in a position to reinstate the offer soon. In the meantime, we would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

However PC Pro magazine points to a recent buy out of Redten's parent company, Watford Electronics, via a group of unnamed backers:

The announcement comes two days after Redten's parent company, Watford Electronics, was bought out by Globally Ltd - a company established earlier this week, that operates from the same premises as Redten. However, according to a Globally Ltd spokesman, Redten wasn't part of the Watford buy-out and the company is now a separate legal entity.

Speaking to PC Pro this morning, a spokesman for Redten said: 'Obviously, we can't take PCs from Watford now. We are in the process of sourcing new stock. The [new PCs] probably will come from the new parent company,' he said.

Existing customers will be pleased to know that their service should be unaffected. Still, it remains to be seen how the ISP will balance its existing service with anything they may provide in the future and doubts shall remain until that becomes clear.
